PHIL BROWN, ACTOR, DEAD AT 89

Actor Phil Brown, who played Luke Skywalker's Uncle Owen in
the 1977 hit film "Star Wars," has died of pneumonia in
Woodland Hills, Calif., at age 89. Brown was blacklisted
during the McCarthy period, although he always denied being
a Communist. He left Hollywood for London, where stayed for
40 years appearing on stage and in films such as "Tropic of
Cancer" and "Twilight's Last Gleaming." George Lucas was
filming interior "Star Wars" scenes in London in the mid-
1970s and stumbled across Brown as he was looking for an
actor with a strong U.S. accent for the role of Uncle Owen,
the newspaper said. When he returned to California in early
1990s, Brown was surprised to learn his small "Star Wars"
had made him a cult celebrity. He is survived by his wife of
65 years, a son, two grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

EDNA LEWIS, CHEF, DEAD AT 89

Chef Edna Lewis, who wrote four books including "The Taste
of Country Cooking" in 1976, has died in Decatur, Ga., at
age 89. Lewis died of natural causes in her sleep, the Los
Angeles Times reported. Longtime friend and housemate Scott
Peacock told the newspaper she had been in failing health
for several years and suffered from dementia. Lewis' other
cookbooks included "The Edna Lewis Cookbook" in 1972, "In
Pursuit of Flavor" in 1988 and "The Gift of Southern Cooking"
with Peacock in 2003. Lewis was hailed by food experts as
the leading African American female chef as well as the dean
of Southern cooking, the Times said. She was named Grande
Dame of Les Dames d'Escoffier International, an award for
female chefs, at age 83. She was inducted into the James
Beard Foundation KitchenAid Cookbook Hall of Fame three years
later, the Times said. Lewis married Steven Kingston in the
1930s and he died in the early 1970s.

PETER BENCHLEY, AUTHOR OF JAWS, DEAD AT 65

Peter Benchley, best known for the 1974 novel "Jaws," died
Sunday at his home in Princeton, N.J., at the age of 65. The
cause of death was pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive scar-
ring of the lungs, said Benchley's wife, Wendy. "Jaws" went
from blockbuster publishing event to blockbuster Hollywood
movie, when director Steven Spielberg's 1975 film adaptation
shattered box-office records and helped usher in the modern
movie blockbuster era. Even before the movie was released,
Benchley's book terrified millions of readers -- many who
refused to go in the water for fear of shark attack. Benchley
came in for criticism from naturalist Jacques Cousteau, and
later said he regretted making the great white shark a
villain, the Times said. He became an active conservationist --
serving as a spokesman for the Environmental Defense Fund and
working with WildAid, teaching about sharks and cautioning
against the killing of sharks for their fins. In addition
to his wife, Benchley is survived by a brother, Nathaniel;
three children, and five grandchildren.
